>> iranian president ahmadne d ahmadnejad, and a close call in new york city could have killed hundreds. i'm juliet huddy in for julie banderas. and tonight, a bomb scare creates fear in new york city. cops found an explosive device inside an suv in the middle of times square. >> we're very lucky thanks to alert new yorkers and professional police officers we avoided what could have been a deadly event. >> who is responsible for this? we have the latest on the investigation. plus, a growing nightmare along the gulf coast. the oil spill is only getting bigger and moving faster than expected and many fear it could have a very grave impact on the
environment. >> this is a lively, how we make our living. >> what's being done on the ground and underwater to protect property, wild life and the region's economy? and violent weather, fast and furious waters create massive flooding in the southeast. is more bad weather on the horizon? but we start in new york and the attempted car bombing in the middle of times square, an suv loaded with explosives smack dab in one of middle of one of the clouded parts of manhattan. investigators say it could have been a deadly day, and luckily the bomb failed to detonate. now the investigation who is hyped the attack. here is what we know from police, 6:30 yesterday evening, someone parks a green nissan pathfinder in times square, smoke coming from the vehicle, quickly realizing it wasn't the average car fire. >> here is commissioner ray
kelly talking about the potential lethal combination of material found inside the s.u.v. >> the n.y.p.d. use add explosive charge to breach the gun locker found in back of the vehicle. it was 55 inches tall, 32 inches wide and contained eight bags of an unknown substance. as well as inverted metal pipe containing a bird's nest of wires and m-88 firecrackers. we're working with the city's department of environmental protection to further identify the bag of material. next to the locker, in the rear cargo area of the pathfinder were three propane tanks weighing between 15 and 17 pounds, one of them had m-88 fireworks attached to its side. some of which detonated inside the vehicle. on the back seat of the vehicle were two full five-gallon red
plastic gasoline containers. between them was a 16 ounce can filled with between 20 and 30 m-88 devices. >> commissioner kelly says clocks were connected to the cans and possibly to the gun locker as well. times square of course a tourist mecca, one of the world's famous landmarks. police evacuated thousands of people many tourists from the area. shut down stores and empty hotels and then blocked off the area as the bomb squad came to investigate and we're told that detectives following multiple leads and reviewing hundreds of hours of tape. and we have david lee miller on the scene in times square and catherine herridge in washington who will be responsible. first to david lee miller. police say they have a possible suspect on tape, is that right? >> that's right, juliet. let's talk a little about the tape that the police have. the police say they have as many as 30 different surveillance cameras that have been under review and just a short time ago
within the hour they've released now, still frames made from surveillance cameras. what you're about to see is a still frame of the nissan pathfinder s.u.v. containing the intersend area i devices entering times square and a second still frame shows the s.u.v. parked in times square and also obtained, but have not released video of a possible suspect that was reportedly made minutes after the incident. showing a man acting suspiciously as if he's trying to change his appearance and commissioner ray kelly describes the video. >> we're currently examining video that shows a white male in his 40's, in schubert alley looking back in the direction of west 45th street. he also was seen shedding a dark colored shirt, revealing a red one underneath. he put the darker one into a bag that he was carrying. this happened about a half block from where the vehicle was
parked. >> also tonight we're getting our very fuhrs first look at the device and released a still frame and looks like a child or a travel alarm clock that was apparently used for detonation and a source close to the investigation tells fox news tonight, that this device technically consisted we're told of four different bombs, in other words, we're told there would have been four separate explosions. this source tells us a sugar nitrate compound was in the back of the pathfinder that was supposed to act like fertilizer. the m-88 fireworks were supposed to initiate triggering devices connected to the gasoline, that would have triggered the sugar nigh freight and sugar nitrate would have caused an explosion of the propane tanks. the police commissioner says it would have been a significant fire ball. tonight, juliet it's likely that many new yorkers owe their lives to a man they've never met or
heard of. he was the t-shirred vendor spotted the vehicle with the smoke out of the back and he was pursued by reporters today and wanted to keep a low profile. one question he answered. what would your advice be to other new yorkers. he said simply if you see something, say something. essentially echoing the public relations here, campaign here in new york city. if you see something, say something. good advice for a city that is still very much op edge a little more than 24 hours after this attack failed to go off. back to you. >> david lee miller live in times square, thank you, david. a taliban group in pakistan poed a video online saying it was hine the attempted times square bombing, but officials tell us so far there's no proof to back up the claim. catherine herridge, what does it indicate who might have been behind this? >> well, juliet, earlier today i spoke with a senior u.s. official who said to me, there was a wealth of forensic
evidence because in part the bomb did not detonate. and i'm told that the ert's, evidence response teams have been going through the vehicle and got some dna including some hair samples though the fbi would not comment tonight. a key thing from the source familiar with the investigation is that the big picture of things, the bomb or the series of bombs were quite crude or amateurish and one of the debates among counterterrorism officials tonight is whether this type of device is really consistent with an overseas group or whether it's more consistent with home grown extremists, but i would emphasize that we're still less than 24 hours out and so it's all very preliminary. juliet. >> and catholic, investigators are looking at a possible link to the cartoon south park which is on calmdy central. explain what that's about? >> well, within the last couple of weeks there was a threat that was made against the creators of south park, a recent episode depicted the profit muhammad wearing a bear costume and this
online group threatened the creators because they felt that it was maligning the prophet. i was told tonight by first of all law enforcement this is one of many option that is they're considering. what's interesting here is that really, until recently when we've seen threats against artists who have drawn pictures of muhammad it's almost always been in europe. within the last six months here in the united states, two american women were implicated in a plot to attack a swedish car soonist overseas who had shown muhammad's head on the body of a dog. so while it's largely been a european problem there's now a nexxis or a connection to the united states which is one of many options that's being explored. >> and comedy central, owned by parent company viacom has a building in the times square area. one other quick question, are they comparing this to plots overseas. >> when i was on the phone one
of the first plots, two plots in 2007, very close proximity to each other, a car bomb which also used propane tanks and gas tanks, did not diffuse that southern london nightclub and an attack, similar type of device and you see the results of that there, it was just a car bombing, vehicle born explosive device at the glasgow airport in 2007. what's interesting, which suggests some sort of consistencies is that in both cases, you had these gas tanks, propane tanks and some sort of device that would act as schrapnel. in the u.k. bomb it was nails, small screws and in this case, it was fireworks, but it's preliminary and they look at the cases and comparisons with the data base at quantico in virginia and something they'll be purge in the next 24 hours.
>> thank you, katherine. >> you're welcome, juliet. >> now to the oil spill in the golf. president obama getting a first and look at the disaster and the president's visit in the gulf coming as the obama administration admits the situation is quote, grave and insisting everything possible is being done to address the possible threat. the president just a few hours ago, listen. >> let me be clear, bp is responsible for this leak. bp will be paying the bill. but as president of the united states, i'm going to spare no effort to respond to this crisis as long as it continues and we will spare no resource to clean up whatever damages cost meanwhile, bp or british petroleum's chairman claims that the negligence is due to the spill, is to blame for the spill. >> investigations are going to show the cause of this accident and we want those investigations to be ton, on my belief is that that does not have anything to do with it. i believe we've got a failed piece of equipment.
we don't know why it failed yet in this contracted rig and b p's system. we'll figure that out. >> this is a projection of where the slick will be by tomorrow. right now the urgency is figuring out how to stop the gushing well leaking oil that created the spill roughly the size of puerto rico, and it's growing. and prompted the government to ban recreational and commercial fishing off the water of four gulf states from louisiana to florida. phil keating in venice, louisiana with the latest, phil. >> juliet, president obama now back on air force one on his way to the capital after the afternoon visit here to what he describes as an unprecedented environmental disaster. now, after he was briefed up the canal here at the u.s. coast guard station by his point man on the government's response, admiral thad allen, the president got on board a helicopter and flew east over some of the fragile bayou wetlands full of 400 species of
wild life with the body of sweet crude nine miles from the shoreline and president obama met with a group of louisianaens, impacted by the oil spill. fishermen out of work and fearing their plight will be long-term, that's because 5,000 feet below the surface where the deepwater horizon burst and sank and killing 11 workers, the aisle continu aisle-- oil continues into the gulf. if the mile deep wellhead will not be capped, oil will be polluting and spreading for possibly two or three months. >> every american affected by this spill should know this, your government will do whatever it takes for as long as it takes to stop this crisis. this is one of the richest and most beautiful eco systems on the planet. >> what plan now, just about six
or eight days from being implemented is what bp calls its dome correction, they drop a box, 40 feet tall, 20 feet deep, capped by a dome which is be connects to hose 5,000 feet up to the surface where at that oil coming directly into the dome will be pumped on board the ship and another method explored is a long-term method which will involve actually establishing a new well line into the same oil reservoir, but that plan is still 60 to 90 days away. juliet. >> phil keating live in louisiana, thanks, phil. a water crisis in massachusetts and millions of people are being affected. why officials say the water is not safe to drink and what they're planning on doing about it next. and plus, tens of thousands gathering to protest all around the country this weekend. and a tough new i am fwrags law taking center stage. hear from both people on both sides of the issue coming up.

because they look illegal. how do we know they're illegal. >> they say it's necessary to deal with the pop huge population of immigrants. >> i'm tired, i'm tired of having to support with my tax dollars for the people who came over here who didn't come here the way they should have. >> if you have your papers, welcome to the united states. >> arizona's controversial crackdown effectively putting the immigration into the national spotlight. case i stegall is live in phoenix, good to see you. how big was the turnout this weekend there? >> good it see you as well. quite a big turnout. in fact, a very different story from when we last saw you last night on the fox report, 24 hours ago, i can barely move where i'm standing right now, as some 7,000 protesters converged on the arizona state capital back here behind me. it wasn't even phoenix where this heated issue brought out the largest crowds. take a look at what went down in los angeles, about 50,000 people
taking to the streets, many calling for californians to boycott arizona businesses. let's take you now to dallas, texas the beg d saw roughly 20,000 people marching downtown. it doesn't matter which great state you were in, the messages remain the same. >> and solely being harassed and i mean, i pay taxes, i go to work every day, i do community service, i help people and for them to just all of a sudden, i helped the veterans and at the va hospital, but the point is for them to just say, oh, there's a mexican, let me pull him over and see if he's legal, that's harassing me. >> now, in an effort to calm some of the fears about this bill leading to racial profiling, arizona governor jan brewer signing an amendment that would prevent law enforcement to use race as a sole reason to ask for papers. if police suspect they're in the state and in this country illegally. they say the law is necessary to

feeling right now? >> yeah, they already are beginning to feel an impact. real estate agents tell us that many people are canceling their vacation rentals in anticipation of the oil spill and also, earlier today we went out to the lighthouse bakery, this bakery had spent the past five years or so recovering from the double whammy that it got from hurricane ivan and then hurricane katrina in 2005. and they were just now beginning to get their business back up, we spoke with the owner, listen. >> this is probably the best year we've had since ivan and katrina. so i'm hoping that this isn't going to impact us as hard as everybody is saying because it isn't like a hurricane. this will have a much longer impact and-- >> and of course, the oil spill already taking a toll on the commercial fishing industry and

>> and while we have prepared and reacted aggressively, i'm not going to rest and not-- none of the gentlemen and women who are here are going to rest or be satisfied until the leak is stopped at the source, the on the gulf is contained, and cleaned up, and the people of this region are able to go back to their lives and their livelihoods. >> with commercial fishing in the region shut down for at least ten days, the president met briefly with a group of fishermen and didn't want to sugar coat anything. the ongoing spill he said is potentially unprecedented environmental disaster and the president promised to help the commercial fishermen get their federal aid to deal with the economic impact and today, back in washington shall the president's homeland security chief had this to say to charges the oil spill is president obama's katrina. in other words, that he was too slow to respond. >> i think that's a total mischaracterization. i think we'll be happy when all
is said and done to be very transparent with all the activity that's happened, really, from the first hours of the explosion. >> the federal response at this point includes nearly 2000 people, two c-130's and staging areas in mississippi, florida, alabama and louisiana, juliet. >> juliet: julie kirtz live in washington. thank you, julie. a high school student in missouri has a very unique prom date. a woman a bit older than him. well, she's a lot older actually, no cougar jokes. the special lady is his great-grandmother. and the special prom date, find out why when we come back. ♪ so is campbell's healthy request soup. low in fat and cholesterol, heart healthy levels of sodium,
